Storyline

After his mother unexpectedly dies, 17-year-old Ethan discovers he is the owner of his mother's horse - a horse he never even knew existed. He travels cross country to live with his grandparents and investigate the mystery. His grandmother is supportive but his angry grandfather Otto doesn't seem to want him around. Next door live three children who are taking riding lessons at the same farm where his mother's horse is boarded. Their lives intersect as Ethan deals with his grief over his mother's death and the children deal with a neighborhood bully whose father works at the horse farm. The journey for Ethan, Otto, the three children, the bully and her father all revolve around a gentle and faithful horse called Bear who deeply touches all their lives. This is a delightful redemption-themed family movie that will appeal to children, teens, horse-lovers and people of all ages. Written by Anonymous

nice family and children film
28 February 2016 | by mr-rob-cSee all my reviews

you will think, why he write a positive rewiev and give only 6 stars... because the picture looks cheap, the acting is really bad, and at least....at no time the horse is building a relationship to the buy, which i think is important for the story, because it is the son, so for me it would have been nice, if the horse have for example pushed him with his head to show him he like him....

so this is my review as an adult, and for me, BUT this all not matters, because anyway it is a sweet family and children film, about hope, believing, friendship and god

therefore I recommend it anyway

greetings from cologne, and sorry for my English ,-)
